New mystery technique

The mystery fabric of this week is a complex cloth, 3 techniques have been used in it.


Coming Monday I will tell you more about how I made this fabric. Publish your idea of how I did it in the comments below this post. I will draw a lucky winner in the next blog post. And don't forget by publishing a comment you will be entered in the draw for our e-book.

  1. Ice or snow dye, with screen printing using a resist block for the leaves, Whew! That sounds like a lot of fun! Great piece.

  2. Love the colour and design of this piece. I'm guessing leaf stencil or stamp, decolourant and ice dyeing.

  3. Perhaps an ice dye print with long needle pine boughs picking up metallic paint from a gelli plate and then "smacked down" randomly across the fabric... and same gel plate and paint, with leaf backs laid down to pick up the paint and then printed all over the surface... awesome fabric any way you did it!

  4. I think the leaves are screen printed randomly and the background looks like it might be snow dyed. It is very pretty!

  5. I think it's been ice dyed, Eco printed with leaves, and discharged by using a screen print with a discharging agent.

  6. I think this one had many steps. First a dried soak ash dyeing followed by color removal with either leaves or leaf stamps. The final step was some leaf stamps with fabric paint.

  13. the leaves seem to be done with two process one under(masked) and one stenciled or printed later on top in the white.I see scrunching wet fabric and echo cloth as a basis. regardless,this piece is the sort of cloth some have a hard time cutting up.

  14. The original dyed layer could be anything but I suspect a DSP, rather than snow dye, because there seems to be some consistent pattern there. Hmmm....now that I've said that, I'm not so sure if that's the first or second layer...lol! OK how about first layer immersion dyed. Second layer, discharged. Top layer gelli plate.This is so funny trying to sort it out!
